Daisy Ridley’s upcoming film Ophelia’s first trailer is here and it is quite good. This movie is a reimagining of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and it puts the center on the character Ophelia and tells the timeless story for her perspective.
The movie also stars Naomi Watts, Tom Felton, and Clive Owen. The movie was directed by Claire McCarthy and there’s no release date yet.
Here’s the synopsis:
Something is rotten in medieval-era Denmark, where political intrigue swirls around the imperial court like dark magic. Amid it all, the queen’s brightest lady-in-waiting, Ophelia, finds herself drawn to Hamlet, the charismatic and elusive crown prince. As their secretive love affair takes flight, betrayal strikes the court, threatening to derail their union and devastate the royal family for good. Caught between her desires and her loyalty, Ophelia has to decide where her devotion will ultimately lie.
This movie is not for everyone of course, but if you’re a fan of Shakespeare or Daisy Ridley, it’s definitely worth watching.
